Published 1896


A Terrible Night
Une Nuit terrible, 1896, 1m08s
Star Film Catalogue No. 26

A bearded man in a nightdress and nightcap extinguishes his cigarette and bedside candle and lies back in bed. A gigantic beetle climbs up the bed, skitters across his prone body and heads up the wall, covered by a curtain. He leaps up as though electrified, grabs a broom, swats the insect onto the bed, and stamps on it. He then picks up its corpse and deposits it in the chamber pot that he keeps in the cupboard by the side of his bed. He then tries to get back to sleep, but finds it impossible.
